Community Garden

Since my childhood, my big passions are animals and nature. I grew up surrounded by both, thanks to my parents. I spend a lot of time outside with my dog Free, and during one of our walks around Prague, we discovered a community garden called "the Meadow." In this garden, they rescue animals such as cows, horses, sheep, hens, and geese. In addition to animals, you can adopt a tree or a beehive and receive local fruits or honey every month. And they grow many seasonal plants you can buy.

I decided to connect my Ketel One Hive Collective community project with this place and create my cocktail using the plants that grow here, changing it according to seasonal offer. I gathered several herbs there and started to think about my cocktail Collective Garden. I decided to go with coriander, a fantastic herb with a fresh aroma and specific taste that works excellent in cordials.

My idea is to engage other bars and restaurants around our country in my project and make the cocktail easy to recreate anywhere. They will be able to support the Community Garden by selling the cocktail and, of course, by purchasing ingredients.

There is always a lot of work that needs to be done around plants and animals. We will make several events to help them with their renovation work. We – bartenders – will spend some time in the fresh air and help make this world a better place.

The Meadow (Pastvina) creates a shelter for many animals. You can support them too!
